  Mycenae - Grave Circle
by Kuznetsov_Sergey

A large central building, a second funerary enclosure (Grave Circle A) and the first tholos tombs were erected on the hill.

Included in the newly fortified area were the city's religious centre and Grave Circle A, which was refurbished and used for ancestral cults.

In 1874, Heinrich Schliemann began excavating Grave Circle A, where he uncovered five graves.
